History

Origin and early years

Macha was a Tuatha de Danaan[1] and seemingly the daughter of Iarbonel and Gaea/Danu, and the sister to the Dagda, Leir, Nuada, Ogma, Badb and Morrigan.

Hyborian Age

Macha was one of the many deities worshiped in Hyboria, invoked notably by the Cimmerians, along with Morrigan and Nemain,[3] as the "triple war goddesses",[1] and with Badb and Neman as the "Triple Goddess of Celtica".[4]

Her name was sometimes invoked as a battle cry,[5] and it was also invoked by Vanirmen.[6]
